Report: Landeskog to miss second straight game

The Denver Post is reporting that Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog will miss his second straight game when he sits out Wednesday's game at the Vancouver Canucks due to head and leg injuries.

Landeskog was hurt during the first period of a game Jan. 26 against the San Jose Sharks on a hard hit by defenseman Brad Stuart. Landeskog returned to the game, but has not played since.

The newspaper reported that while Landeskog is traveling with the team and was at the arena during the morning skate, it only was to receive medical treatment and he did not get on the ice.

Avalanche coach Joe Sacco said there is no timetable for Landeskog to return.

In four games, the 20-year-old forward has one goal and a plus-3 rating.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
